Des arrives home and Mike introduces him to Megan. Mike asks how Jamie is and Des says he can't wait till he comes out of the humidity crib. Des says he'll eat dinner and then head back to the hospital. Des tells Megan she can stay for a few days but can't promise the room will be open for long.
Henry arrives. He's bored. Lucy thinks they should play scrabble but Jane says she has to do her flute practice first. Jane doesn't think Henry is the scrabble type but he says she has underestimated him.
Megan has barely touched her dinner. Mike clears away the plates and Des tries to make small talk. Megan talks about her rich family but says she never sees them, as her parents are always busy. She says Des may have seen her sister zooming around Elliott Park in the pink Porsche her boyfriend gave her. Des looks stunned. The phone rings and as Mike and Megan talk Des' voice gets louder. He runs out of the door telling Mike that Jamie has taken a turn for the worse.
Beverly is telling Des there is nothing more they can do. It's up to Jamie now as he's got all the assistance they can provide. Des says they shouldn't tell Daphne. However he doesn't know he will keep this from her, as he's never lied to her in his life. He enters the room to see Harold and Madge entertaining Daphne. They have gifts for Jamie. Des is overwhelmed especially when Harold presents them with a bible.
Lucy is playing her flute whilst Jane and Henry play scrabble. Henry asks her to stop as she's ruining his concentration. Lucy says she's going to see Bouncer. Jane realises she's using him as an excuse to see Megan and tells her not to say anything embarrassing.
Mike is worried about Jamie. Megan says she wishes he cared about her as much as he does about the baby. Lucy arrives and asks to see Bouncer. Mike says he's too tied and shuts the door. Lucy knocks again and asks if Jamie's ok. Mike shuts the door but Lucy comes in and introduces herself to Megan. Lucy starts talking about Jane and how pretty she is.
Harold and Madge leave and Des says he'll walk them to the lift. When they get outside the room Des tells them about Jamie and how sick he is. He asks them for advice, should he tell Daphne that Jamie should die or should he save her from the torment and hope he gets better. Madge and Harold are gutted and tell Des he has to do what he thinks is right. Madge says they should just pray that Jamie will be ok.
Des heads back to Daphne's room and says there's something he has to tell her; he's a very lucky man.
Lucy is recalling what she said to Megan. Jane is furious and goes to bed. Lucy tells Henry she was just trying to stick up for Jane. Henry says Jane thinks she's over Mike but he knows she isn't.
Des and Daphne are lying together when Beverly calls Des outside. She tells asks if he's spoken to Daphne and he says he couldn't go through with it. Beverly tells him there is no news but says they will know either way by the morning.
Mike is on the phone to the hospital and wants to know how Jamie is. He can barely hear as Megan has turned the music up so loud. He gets off the phone and asks Megan if she'd want a family one day. She says she doesn't like kids but may get broody in the future. Mike tells her she's not the person he thought she was when they met.
Des is sitting outside Daphne's room. He says a prayer.
Des: G'day God. This is Des Clarke speaking. I know you haven't heard from me very often but I'm praying to you in the hope you spare my sons life. That little baby means everything to me and Daph. God you've already given me more then I probably deserve but I promise if you keep Jamie alive I'll be the most grateful father that ever drew breath. Please mate, I'm begging you. Oh yeah....Amen.
The following morning and there's still no news. The nurse takes away Daphne's untouched breakfast tray and Daphne says she is going to the kiosk. When she leaves her room she finds Des sleeping on the chair outside. She wakes him up and asks him what's wrong.
Madge tells Henry she hasn't had much sleep. She says she's worried about Jamie. Henry tells Madge he's taken on board her lecture about old-fashioned romance. He says he's giving up cracking onto every new girl he meets.
Des has told Daphne about Jamie. She says she wishes he had told her last night so they could have gone through it together. The nurse arrives and tells them Beverly is on her way to see them. Des and Daphne sit up alarmed and Beverly enters the room.....carrying Jamie. She hands him to Des and Daphne and Des tells God he owes him one.
DES:(to God) Thanks mate! I owe you one.
